Whitehead Lecture Notes


WRP is currently organizing, digitizing, and transcribing notes from Whitehead's Harvard lectures from the 1920s and 1930s for publication in the Critical Edition of Whitehead (CEW). Many of these lecture notes cannot be made publicly available due to agreements with various university archives. The lecture notes that we can freely share are available for researchers below.
